What is the Kegel8 Day Toner Pelvic Exerciser and how does it work?
The Kegel8 Day Toner Pelvic Exerciser is a discreet device, about the size of a tampon it can be 'worn' inside your vagina to give your daily kegel work-out a boost. It is simple to use, quintessentially feminine and a great support (literally) for your kegel exercise routine. Kegel8 Day Toner Pelvic Exerciser works in two ways. Firstly, reports from women have shown that when it is inserted into your vagina your muscles automatically contract around it, and this 'reflex' action can help towards strengthening your muscles. Secondly, the presence of Kegel8 Day Toner Pelvic Exerciser when inserted acts as a resistance against your manual kegel exercises as whilst you perform your 'lift and squeeze' exercises, you are challenging yourself to retain the toner at the same time.
Why should I use it?
Kegel exercising with the Day Toner is really easy and no one will know! Many of us have hectic lives, demanding families and careers to pursue and sadly quite often, our own needs fall to the back of the list and remembering to do kegel exercises is sometimes well down at the bottom of the list. With the Day Toner it is easy to remember your kegel-exercises. Simply insert your Day Toner when it suits you - as your lunch break begins, before heading out on the school run, before popping to the shops - just 20 minutes and you've given yourself a kegel work-out to be proud of. You are not restricted to needing to be in privacy to exercise as Kegel8 Day Toner is the toner you wear! It rinses under the tap, and there's a handy satin storage pouch too so you could even keep a spare Day Toner in your handbag. No matter where or what you are doing just remember to use it, because the secret to a good pelvic floor exercise routine is remembering to do them regularly. You'll also find that the Day Toner is a handy little accessory when you are exercising - running, jumping or playing sport - it will be your new best friend.

- Dilly must try harder Review by Dilly46
My Mum uses one and she says it stops her leaking and she doesn't have to wear pads now so that is good. (Posted on 16 June 2012)
- Easy to use Review by Mina J
For the first time this week I didn't have to wear the standard black leggings to running club in case of any leaks - that is a real first for me since I have been running again and I am so pleased, because wet patches are just not good for self esteem. I have told a lot of the women there and I am sure you'll get a few more converts! I think it is good for women to be aware of their pelvic floor muscles. (My sister is a physiotherapist and she tells me about the problems of prolapse and things hanging out - I just don't want to go there!
I have two children 8 and 4 and I am 38 years old, hope this helps others! (Posted on 7 March 2012)

Good service and helpline was informative thank you. (Posted on 5 April 2012)
- great Review by KissKate
- Maybe should be bigger Review by Sara L
- persevere with this its worth it Review by dee dee
- No luck so far despite daily use in addition to Kegel8 ultra for cystocele and rectocele Review by Peters
Depending on the degree of prolapse, it could force the Day Toner out. Please persevere with the Kegel8 ultra pelvic toner exercises this is going to be your biggest ally in getting your pelvic floor strong again. Results can be slow, however if you proceed with the surgery the exercising will help to make the surgery more effective - and it will be essential for you to continue exercising after surgery. You might like to look at other things you can do too - such as
1. Weight - critical for the pelvic floor. Even 1/2 stone over your ideal weight will impact too heavily on your pelvic floor.
2. Posture - BBC - Bum at the back of the chair - sit up, don't slouch. This has a direct affect on your 'core' muscles, and really will make a big difference. Walk tall - check out Tasha Mulligan on You Tube - sound quality not always great, but information priceless.
3. Avoid straining and constipation - the squattypotty is great for aligning your bowels to make pooing easier. An amazing product, you'll certainly need it following surgery so please consider this.
4. Vitamin D3 - please invest in a good quality D3 - (Life Extension D3 with iodine is the one I use, make sure the Vitamin D3 is cholecalciferol) and it has been clinically proven to make pelvic floor exercising more effective, D3 works on bones and muscles and helps the body absorb calcium.
There are possibly other pessaries that could help you - had you thought about asking your specialist? Many women use these and find them very effective - although sizing is crucial. There are styles for all types of prolapse.
I am sorry that the Day Toner has not worked for you, but do please keep up with the Ultra pelvic toner, progress will be slow, but you will improve.

- Everyone should own one Review by cumbrian lass
Kegel8 Reply: Hi. So pleased to hear how well the Day Toner works for you - it is a great accompaniment to the electronic exercisers. The advice given to replace every six months is a recommendation for hygiene reasons in line with the products CE certification - I hope this helps. (Posted on 28 March 2013)
- Unable to use Review by Charlie
This is a real pitty as I found it really easy to use and would have continued if things had been different. But having spent £30 on the device and a further £30 on treatment I feel it is not for me.
Good luck ladies!
From Kegel8: Sorry to hear this Charlie. Just a couple of suggestions in the hope that you can use your Day Toner again... try changing how you clean your Day Toner i.e. if you use soap, try an antibacterial cleaner or just plain warm water instead. If you use a lubricant make sure it is water-based and body-friendly. If you don't use any lubricant, try it. Just a little to prevent dryness. I hope this might help so you can get the best out of your Day Toner Charlie. Best of luck. (Posted on 25 February 2013)
which of your poducts will be right for me please?
I spend a fortune on panty liners.
Thank you for your questions. I would recommend the Ultra, http://www.kegel8.co.uk/kegel8-ultra.html it is our most powerful machine and it will help get you strong. As we pass our menopause our oestrogen levels drop and our muscles become weaker - this is usually the time many women develop leaks. It also means that any exercise will take longer to show results - because of the low oestrogen levels. So I have recommended the strongest machine to help your pelvic floor get strong and to stop the leaks.
I would also recommend a good vitamin D3 - clinical studies have shown that exercising with higher levels of D3 gets better results. Sometimes we need all the help we can get!
May I also suggest posture, walk talk and BBC - Bum at the Back of the Chair every-time you sit down, as opposed to a C shape of collapsing in your hips and slumping in a chair.These little changes can make a big difference to your core muscles and those of the pelvic floor.

Thank you for your question.
OK, the Kegel8 Ultra pelvic toner http://www.kegel8.co.uk/kegel8-ultra.html will be perfect for you. It will help you improve the health and tone of your pelvic floor prior to the surgery. By improving the blood circulation in your pelvic area this should help with surgical outcomes and more importantly, with your recuperation after the pelvic surgery.
I would also like to mention that as you have a rectocele you are also more prone to developing a cystocele (bladder prolapse) so it is vital that you work to strengthen your pelvic floor to prevent further prolapse.
Also have a look at getting a squatty potty - it will help with your toilet visits post op. When you have had your operation you need to make sure that you do not strain your pelvic floor. Check out Physios such as Michelle Kenway (DVD Inside Out www.stressnomore.co.uk) on You Tube, Sue Croft - Pelvic Floor Recovery and Tasha Mulligan. They have free films on You Tube that I am sure you will find useful. Michelle in particular has a film called exercises to avoid after prolapse surgery which is essential viewing.
Please purchase free from VAT you do qualify.
1. Weight - is critical for the pelvic floor. Every pound over your ideal weight will be detrimental to your pelvic floor.
2. Posture - BBC - Bum at the back of the chair, don't sit on your 'tail' bone (coccyx) - sit up, don't slouch. This has a direct benefit to your 'core' muscles, and really will make a big difference. Walk tall.
3 Vitamin D3 - .I know it's sunny at the moment but it has been clinically proven that pelvic floor exercising is more successful/effective with higher levels of D3. Vitamin D3 works on bones and muscles and helps your body absorb calcium.
4. I know you say you have ignored your pelvic floor - so please make a pact with yourself that after your surgery you will enter into a Kegel8 Boot Camp - twice a day for 12 weeks - this intense workout will really help to get your floor in shape. Many women give up exercising because they believe that the exercises aren't working when in reality they have not exercised for longer enough to notice the difference. I am also aware that should you decide to stop taking HRT - or if your Dr decided against it, your muscles may show a deterioration so now is the time to get strong and pelvic-floor aware!
Good luck with your op Thea.
Thank you for your question, we are here to help.
thanks in advance
Thank you for your question - I am sorry you are experiencing urine leaks during your pregnancy, but 1:3 women experience this during pregnancy.
I am afraid I cannot recommend a Kegel8 Pelvic Toner or vaginal weight for you whilst you are pregnant. You are only allowed to do manual 'squeeze and release' exercises whilst pregnant. See further details of Kegel Exercises here: http://www.kegel8.co.uk/articles/pelvic-floor-exercise/how-to-do-kegel-exercises.html and also have a look at:
http://www.kegel8.co.uk/articles/pelvic-floor-exercise/pelvic-floor-before-after-childbirth.html Pelvic Floor before and after childbirth - it will tell you when you can start kegel exercising after the birth of your baby.
When baby is safely here you can use any Kegel8 Pelvic Toner - and regain control. Don't worry if the leaks continue for a while - up to 1:5 women report this after the birth - just a few weeks of kegel exercising will help you get back in shape.
Good luck, here to help
I am 28 yr old and don't really have any pelvic problems. however I am considering the fact that getting older will bring loads of health issues. I'm thinking of doing Kegel exercises and I could use some support as I am not sure if they are correct or not. I was thinking of purchasing the day toner. Would this be suitable for me?
All the best,
Some women use the Daytoner as a type of pessary when they exercise to stop leaks too - so if your brief is purely exercise, the cones would be the best for you.Fiona@kegel8
Thank you for your question. No you do not have to remove the DayToner when you urinate, but you might find that you prefer to, it is personal choice. Some women use the Day Toner to add pressure against the urethra to stop leaks when they exercise and some have said they prefer to remove it, but it is not essential.
The same is true when you have a poo, you may prefer to remove it, but it is not essential.
Hope this helps - it is a case of seeing what feels best for you.
Fiona@Kegel8 Pelvic Toners
What you describe sounds like a weakness in you detrusor muscle - this is the muscle which contracts to control the flow of urine when you go to the loo. You do ultimately need to exercise your pelvic floor and the stress incontinence programme on the Kegel8 Ultra does target the detrusor muscle.
However, as well as exercise I would also recommend you see your GP and ask to be referred to a Continence Specialist. It is difficult for us to say for sure that the detrusor muscle is the problem here. Whilst it is highly likely we of course do not know any surrounding elements to your symptoms - your age, weight, medical history - all of these things contribute.
Good luck Karen and if we can help any further please do not hesitate to give us a call.
I am a teacher and I am on my feet a lot of the day
Thanks for any help
Although the toner could help I am afraid that it is recommended for use for just 20 minutes at a time. We are looking to develop a new product for prolonged wear as we appreciate this would be helpful for many women.
I can recommend a pessary range from StressNoMore ( www.stressnomore.co.uk ). You can find them in their Pelvic Floor section. This is something you could use to help for prolonged periods of time.
You may already have one of our electronic exercisers but just to make you aware if you are not already that these have programmes to treat prolapse... something to think about.
I hope this helps Sue but if you would like any more advice please do not hesitate to contact us.
I would recommend to you the Kegel8 Ultra Vitality - this unit has a unique 'vitality' programme for sexual sensation and tightening. I think it fits what you are wanting to achieve perfectly.
I tend to use my Kegel 8 at night before I go to sleep and wondered whether I could then sleep with the day toner in as I have seen sme ladies suggest from the reviews. I do not think I will be able to use it during the day as at the moment I cannot retain anything standing up and have to exercise always laid down so I strongly suspect I would not be able to retain this to begin with unless lying down.
Please could you advise? I'm so desperate to sort my problem out - most other reviewers seem to talk about seeing results in days and weeks - is it normal to make such slow progess if your stress incontinence is quite bad? I'm wondering whether I should purchase the Trainer too but its so expensive and I'm scared that I wouldn't be able to squeeze it at all.
I am pleased you have not given up - it is very important you don't.
The Day Toner is recommended for use for just 20 minutes at a time. This makes it recommendable for a trip to the shops or during exercise for peace of mind you can avoid embarrassment. It can also be inserted and used as a resistance to squeeze your muscles against to perform manual kegel exercises. Clinical studies have shown that giving the muscles something to squeeze against (known as resistance exercising) gives better results than having nothing for your muscles to squeeze. It helps with technique and adds weight for your muscles to lift.
Based on this, it is not recommended to wear the Day Toner throughout the night. However, you could use it lying down to perform manual kegel exercises.
Try not to worry about the time it is taking you to see improvements with your Ultra in comparison to other women in our reviews and testimonials. We are all very different and results can take days, weeks or months. Our muscles work and heal differently. Patience and dedication are key. There are a few things I could suggest for you to potentially speed up the results from your Ultra;
1. Make sure you have your mAs high enough - you need to be feeling a strong pull on your muscles. Every woman feels the intensity differently so I am unable to advise exactly how high to have your mAs but you need to be feeling more than a tingle and aiming for a strong contraction of the muscles whilst still feeling comfortable.
2. Have you tried using your Ultra twice per day? You can safely exercise with Kegel8 twice per day providing you leave sufficient time for your muscles to rest. 8 hours is usually enough so we recommend to use it in a morning and then again in the evening before bed.
3. If you are just using the stress incontinence programme, try and introduce P09 (the full pelvic floor workout) on occasions - perhaps once per week. It is a 45 minute programme but it is worth finding the time to do as it is very thorough.
4. If you already have your mAs quite high, a stronger probe could really help you. Have a look at our Persize Probe. It has 4 electrodes and is powered by both channels on your Ultra making it much more powerful and women are reporting great results.
I really hope this has helped you Ruth. The Trainer would be a very good product for you - it will not only help your motivation and help you see improvements that may not otherwise be recognisable but it will also be great to get your muscles working independently again (which they are not if you are unable to retain toners whilst standing) and is a great means of getting even more kegel exercises in in-between using your Ultra. However, I would wait for further improvements with your Ultra before you invest - it is worth every penny but it is also a significant out-lay.
If we can help you any further at all Ruth please do contact us. There can always be other contributing factors to pelvic floor weakness such as medications, problems with posture… all sorts of things we don’t initially consider. We are here to help. Please don't give up.
I hope this helps and please do not hesitate to call us if we can help you any further.
No, I am afraid nothing should be used during pregnancy for your pelvic floor. Manual exercises with no toner or cones will be advised by your midwife.
Following the birth of your baby you should wait for the all clear from your GP or health visitor - this is usually around 6 weeks but everyone is different and some heal faster than others.
Best of luck
It works in one of two ways - as a 'resistance' device - as soon as you put anything into the vagina the muscles close around it, this is known as passive exercise, and also by putting pressure against the urethra - this can help to stop involuntary leaks when exercising etc.
It can also be used as a 'resistance device' so that you perform your kegel exercises and by pressing against it, they are more effective (than by just squeezing with an empty vagina). Hope this helps.
Many women use the Daytoner for short periods to locate their pelvic floor muscles, when exercising, or as a daily reminder to do their kegels regularly. (You can put it in and leave it - but you will get better results if you exercise against it).
If you are embarking on a course of kegel exercises, do look at taking a good Vitamin D3 supplement - according to a clinical paper I read last week you get much better results if your D3 levels are high (Life Extension do a good one - sorry we don't sell it!!)
Hope this helps
Than you for your question, apologies for the delay.
If your tampons fell out then this is an indication that the pelvic muscles are week - sadly you did not know, and many women don't know either that these are the early warning signs that should not be ignored.
Great that you are addressing your weight - hard to do over 50 I am afraid (with you on that one!).
Sadly I feel that the Day Toner is a bit too lightweight for you - you need something more intense, because of your age (lowering oestrogen levels mean your muscles are not as elastic & supportive). The Day Toner, like the tampons would probably just fall out, unless you used it as an 'resistance' so you perform manual kegel exercises (squeezes and releases) against it. If you are diligent enough to do your manual squeezes against it then go for it, but if not, please save up for a more suitable exerciser for your needs.
I would point you in the direction of the Kegel8 Ultra, http://www.kegel8.co.uk/kegel8-ultra-plus.html different price band to the Day Toner I am afraid, but as you have suffered with a weak pelvic floor for a number of years it would be advisable to help you get the strengthen and tone back in those muscles again.
I hope this is of help to you,
Hope this helps
